Study Examines Employment Trends Among Patients with Kidney Failure

• Among working-aged adults who started dialysis between 1996 and 2013, employment was low throughout the study period at 23-24%, and 38% of patients who were employed 6 months prior to being diagnosed with kidney failure stopped working by the time they initiated dialysis. After accounting for differences in patients over time, the probability of employment in kidney failure patients increased slightly over time.

Overweight Female Kidney Donors May Be at Risk for Preeclampsia

Female kidney donors who are overweight may be at a greater risk for preeclampsia during pregnancy than those with normal body weight, according to a new study. The increased risk is due to a reduction in a type of kidney function called renal functional reserve (RFR).

Physician Burnout

Experts Call for Action to Address Physician Burnout in Nephrology

Kidney specialists face increasing work demands, high rates of burnout, and declining interest in nephrology as a career. A group of articles publishing in an upcoming issue of the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (CJASN) sheds light on how that these factors threaten to reduce job satisfaction and impair the delivery of high-quality care to patients with kidney diseases.

The most common type of tumor found in the kidney is generally quite small (less than 1.5 in). These tumors are usually found by accident when CAT scans are performed for other reasons and the serendipitous finding poses a problem for doctors.

Zooming in on Protein to Prevent Kidney Stones

Researchers have applied Nobel prize-winning microscope technology to uncover an ion channel structure that could lead to new treatments for kidney stones. In a recent study published in Nature Structural and Molecular Biology, researchers revealed atomic-level details of the protein that serves as a passageway for calcium across kidney cell membranes.

Carfilzomib Can Lead to Cardiovascular Toxicity in Multiple Myeloma Patients

The proteasome inhibitor carfilzomib has taken on an increasing role in the treatment of multiple myeloma, but new research from the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania shows the therapy comes with the risk of cardiovascular problems in a higher than expected percentage of patients.

World Record Kidney Chain Extends with Inspired Organ Donors

Tyler Williamson went to TEDx Birmingham’s 2017 event in March expecting to be inspired and to network and make new connections with fellow attendees. What the 27-year-old did not anticipate was that inspiration would lead him to volunteer to become a living kidney donor just seven months later.

Three months after receiving a kidney transplant, Holly Miyagawa was back on the beach playing volleyball. That was 17 years ago. Since then, the Hermosa Beach, CA, resident has gone on to medal in volleyball at the World Transplant Games and the Transplant Games of America. This New Year's Day, she'll accompany the Donate Life float in the Tournament of Roses Parade, representing Cedars-Sinai, where she received her transplant.

Patients Have an Important Voice in Shaping Kidney Disease Research and Treatment

In an effort to provide patients the opportunity to share practical health consumer perspectives, the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (CJASN) is including Patient Voice editorials that will accompany certain journal articles. In the first editorial, Paul T. Conway, a past recipient of the ASN President’s medal, highlights 2 CJASN articles that focus on patient comprehension of how treatments align with their individual interests.
